So,i bought AK(and i also preordered the season pass),but i haven't started playing yet,nor will I for the next couple of weeks,as is still have exams to take.
Reading the reviews thread(and generally reviews) most people hate the Batmobile and the absence of boss battles,while some people absolutely love the story,while others are disappointed.(and ofc there is controversy avout the "lack" of challenge maps(i never played them anyway) and the pc port).
Having said that,how would you rank AK?
I have only played AC(While i have watched the AA and AO "game movies") and i think that it is my favorite game ever,so i was hoping that AK would top that.

After completing Arkham Knight I would say City remains my favourite. Generally I love tearing around Gotham in pursuit mode and battle mode can be satisfying in small doses but there are some Batmobile based missions in Knight that I never want to play again, EVER! I honestly can't believe anyone @ Rocksteady ever thought they were enjoyable to do.

City gets everything just right for me. It gets the style and tone of everything that I love about Batman. It has that oldy world Batman '89/animated series vibe to it but with a more comic orientated feel. It saddens me that Rocksteady ended the series as they did.

I would agree with this. I loved the first 3 arkham games with City being my overall favorite. I like Arkham Knight.

I replayed the first 3 arkham games almost immediately after beating them. I think Arkham Knight will be waiting a while for me to do that.

Personally my favourite Batman game is origins, i know it's considered the weakest in the franchise but personally im more of a fan the games overall style. The game felt like a comic as for the other Arkham games they all felt like Nolan movies mixed with the graphic novels.

I find the rocksteady games try to give just as much of a nod to the movies(burton and Nolan) and tv shows as they do the books. Which I enjoy.

The worst thing that came from the series is the martial artist in Origins. ALWAYS breaks the flow of combat.
Doesn't help that my game is glitched and even in the normal game the counter icons don't show up.

1. City
2. Origins
3. Asylum

I play Arkham games for the challenge mode, so City is my number 1 pick. Origins was fun, but its many bugs took their toll on me.
